I’d like to issue everyone a challenge.

Who here can complete an entire army? I know that there are myths out there that it can be done, but do you have the gaul to do so yourself? I’m quite sure the lot of us has a slew of miniatures either in their codex gray state or primed, but what have you done with them? I bet you can’t paint them.

Bring it – let’s debug the entire stereotype that many people have about our hobby. Let’s break the grey and primered horde.

In my possession, I have over 4,000 points of Warriors of Chaos and I’m betting I can get a well-rounded list of 2,250 painted by October 1st.

Who’s with me?

There are two heats to fall into:

May 1st: 2,250 points and above will start. If we have people who are in this point realm, but can't make it, they can start in the next heat.

June 1st: 0-2,249 points start at this mark. From here on out, we're all on the same mark to finish by October 1st. If you weren't able to make it to the May 1st start, this is where you'll be starting from.

Here are the rules:

List the army you are pledging along with the point total and your designated start/ finish date in a post on this official tracking list. I will put your name, army type/ point total along with your end date at on this opening thread.

Start your very own WIP Thread with “Tale of Painters” in the title. If you already have a WIP, merely change the title.

Any army will do- whether it is Fantasy or 40k. Do something.
Update your army weekly, bi-weekly, or however you feel.

Have fun with this. Don’t kill yourself over it. You’ll love this army when you’re done. Believe me, you will.

Amaze us; develop a story behind your army.

Encourage each other.


That being said, here are the pledgers:

Great to see everyone signing up! Make sure to stretch out a bit before picking up those brushes when you start.

Hi! I'd like to join too. Here's the models I'm going to paint:

Vampire Counts, The Flesh Eater Clan:
* 100 Crypt Ghouls
= 824 points.

Orcs & Goblins, Goblin Reinforcements:
* 2 Goblin Warbosses
* 2 Goblin Shamans
* Goblin Wolf Chariot
* 100 Night Goblins
* 4 Night Goblin Fanatics
* 5 Goblin Wolf Riders
* 2 Goblin Rock Lobbers
* 5 Trolls
= 1535 points

So it's 2259 points worth of stuff. Can I start before the 1st of May? xD I have so many models to paint I'd hope so. If no, I'll start on the first of May. The models will be painted on the first of October.

- Cheers, Skarsnik. :thumbsup:

Come on people! 8 more days until the thread closes! Join the myth and legend! Be great!

They will tell stories, oh yes... they will tell stories.

Plus if we get more than 20 people, Santawraith told me in confidence that he'd release his racy photo of him posing on a couch.

Ok I'll try to join, I already painted about 1500pts (old book) of Tomb Kings since march, so I've been very active with my brushes, but I plan to go on with more!

Here's what I have left to paint for my Tomb Kings, that I hope to complete during this event;

1 Tomb King (from Sphinx box)
1 Tomb King (Reaper mini)
1 Liche Priest (Conversion from zombie part, primed black)
1 Liche Priest (Converted GW Metal mini)
1 Mounted Lich Priest (Converted GW metal mini)
1 Tomb King Herald (slighlty converted Reaper mini)

40 Skeletons (full command and light armour, currently building)
6 Light Horsemen
3 Chariots (half-painted, much work to do still)

3 Sepulchral Stalker (will need to build, uncertain)
30 Tomb Guard (20 metal mixed with 10 new plastic, will mix Halberd and hand weapons)
1 Warsphinx (will need to build, uncertain)

1 Casket of Souls (might swap the Liche with a more mundane one from above)

That should be about 2000-2250pts with the new book, depending on the characters equipment.

From this list, the Stalkers and Warsphinx are uncertain, since it's a new kit, I might play around more with it wich might prevent me to paint them in time, and/or can delay me if I get involved in heavier converting with them.

Some squads have partially painted/basecoated/almost completed guardsmen in them, but its not a big percentage of any of the squads.
